Heywood, John
Action Learning: Research and Practice, v6 n1 p89-95 Mar 2009
Action learning (AL) has been called the "engine of the learning organisation". It has been demonstrated that it can help individuals adapt to, and be more effective in, the fast-changing world. This article reports on a one-day conference held at Henley Business School. The conference was jointly organised by Henley Business School and by the International Foundation for Action Learning. The aim of the conference was to provide space, time and the opportunity to explore aspects of action learning practice. Participants came from diverse backgrounds both in the UK and in Europe. Various sectors were represented including corporate, central government, health, independent and academic. Using the principles of "Open Space", participants generated the discussion topics and created their own individual agendas.
